    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great job if you're a student looking for a job in customer service that isn't too demanding. It's very simple and there isn't much that is complicated about it.
    - Good benefits, even for part timers
    - Nice lunches and breaks
    - Coworkers who will help if ever you need it
    - Fairly easy to move around in the company

    Cons

    Although it's an easy job, it becomes more mundane as time goes on.
    - Occasionally difficult to get time off
    - Depending on management work can be stressful for no reason
    - They really don't expect much from you
    - Management doesn't really answer/pay attention to employee complaints

    Advice to Management

    Be more weary of what you employees are telling you.

    Pros

    This company takes great pride in providing the best customer service possible. Safety for customers and employees is another thing to be recognized.

    Cons

    Providing enough staffing during the busiest hours of the day is an issue that runs through all departments, causing frustration for everyone, along with loss of sales.

    Advice to Management

    To have employees overlap schedules for about an hour or two in order to get things organized and allow communication between coworkers.

    Pros

    You get to work there and pretty much do nothing. It's kinda boring fam. But you get used to it.

    A lot. Probably too much to tell. They watch your washroom breaks like crazy. Annoying as hell. And they try to skimp your pay sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Fixup
